running with ebp sensor unplugged

Like the title says can i run my 04 with the sensor undone? I have been having problems lately with the turbo not whistling at any throttle position. So i took the tube off of the sensor and cleaned it last night. I left the sensor unplugged and drove it a little bit . I can hit over 30 pounds of boost and it seems like the truck drives a little better. I have never hit even close to 30 pounds and im running custom innovative tunes. So can i leave it unplugged or is it going to screw it up?

I don't know if you will mess anything up but I wouldn't run without it pluged in. Just replace the darn thing.

Is your 2004 an early or a late 2004 (ie where is the ICP sensor)?

Mine is an early 04, ICP on the back of the motor. What difference does that make? It can still mess with the VGT and the fan.

Do you have a scan tool to datalog? Curious if the EBP sensor is bad, or if unhooking it just uses a default value that masks the real issue. Either way, it's not a good idea to leave it unhooked. Is the tube that connects it to the exhaust manifold restricted?

Are you familiar with the "Inferred EBP Flash" for the 2003 engines (including early 04 trucks) only?

nope, no clue seems like it might be the KAM re-learn which I do know about.

The inferred EBP flash eliminates the use of the EBP sensor as an input for the 03 and early 04 engines. With this flash the only issue an EBP sensor can cause is if there is an electrical short in the sensor, connector, or wiring. The PCM ignores the signal. In fact you can not retrieve an EBP sensor reading from the PCM on these engines (Ford IDS can retrieve a calculated EBP signal - ie the inferred value). Bottom line is that the EBP sensor value will NOT "mess w/ the turbo and fan" on vehicles with this flash. That is why I asked.

So what does this have to do with running with the EGR unplugged? Also, how does one get this flash?

He asked about running with the EBP unplugged, not the EGR
